http://wp.me/pdZo0-I7 On the N.W. side of the Makalam bridge, in the City of Jambi, there is a graveyard that contains the remains of a number of Dutch, Japanese, American, and Chinese graves.
The official name of the graveyard is "Makam Belanda (Kerkhof)." The literal translation from bahasa Indonesia into English, of the first two words is "grave" and "Dutch." The third word, "Kerkhof," is a Dutch word, and using an online translator, we discovered it to mean "cemetery."
We looked diligently for the oldest and the most recent tomb stone, and the oldest we found was dated 1918, which was that of "Elisabeth Victoria Clementine." The most recent we found was a 5 year old child, buried in 1987, whose first name was "Tamas" (probably a derivative of "Thomas").
The size of the graveyard is a little under 1 acre. At this time many of the graves have fallen into disrepair, and only a handful of the writings on the tombstones are legible. It is evident that many of the people who are buried there were not soldiers or representatives of the Dutch colonial authority, but were perhaps descendants of the Dutch, who chose to remain in Jambi after Indonesia gained its independence in 1945.
